So what's on tap for this weekend? I can hear crickets chirping.....

Bands? Horse races? Main Street blocked off? Extra cops being brought in to ticket open containers? Politicians marching in the parade? Donald Trump Jr riding a bucking horse? Pancake breakfast at the Range Riders Museum?

Inquiring minds want to know.

As far as I know,all of the above and more,except Chump Junior.....can you imagine Secret Service Gmen trying to fight off a throng of drunken giddy GOP Trump junkie cowboys?

I probably was last at a BHS weekend in the late 80s, except for a few years ago when we went to MC for lunch and forgot it was BHS weekend. I've never been to any of the fairgrounds BHS events. I was definitely a downtowner only.

Definitely a young'uns game. Many good memories before Main was blocked off. The fun seemed better when it wasn't so regulated. But I can see why the changes were made.

Wonder why they don't point the video camera somewhere other than the street and the toilets? Maybe highlight a bandstand like in past years. Just a thought after viewing the sights.

My daughter and I watched for a while last night. We were timing how long it took people to use the porta-potties and concluded girls take about 10 seconds longer than boys.

I tried to watch the parade this morning but the webcam wasn't working for me.

I couldn't watch the parade either. It would play for about 5 seconds, then "buffer" for about 15 seconds, repeat repeat. I gave up around 9:15.

Later in the day when there was nothing but traffic to watch, it worked like a champ.

Lots of people at the same time tried to watch the Cam... most likely bogging down the bandwidth and that's why some of you had trouble viewing.

Then, with just boring traffic being shown, everybody stopped watching the webcam and the bandwidth freed up, making things smooth watching again
